Ghana Premier League round up, Hearts, Kotoko record narrow wins
Kotoko scored late to down New Edubiase United 1-0 in Kumasi

Kwabena Adusei converted a last-gasp penalty at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium to hand Asante Kotoko a narrow 1-0 win over New Edubiase United in a nail-biting encounter on Sunday. 

The Porcupine Warriors struggled to break down a resilient Edubiase side with playmaker Asiedu Attobrah handing them a nightmarish game before their home fans.

Alhassan Nuhu took his marching orders midway through the second half and Kotoko took advantage of the numerical advantage to heap pressure on their visitors.

The game travelled deep into injury-time before a defender handled the ball inside the Edubiase box.

Adusei stepped up and rattled the net to keep Kotoko's perfect round intact.

Elsewhere at the Tema Park, Hearts of Oak got back to their winning ways after surviving a late scare to beat league debutants Inter Allies 3-2.

Attacker Winful Cobbinah scored twice in the first half for Hearts (13th and 24th) but Goeckel Ahotor halved the deficit for Allies in the 35th minute.

But Selasi Adjei restored the two-goal advantage for Hearts six minutes before the break.

Hearts tried to increase the tally but Selasi wasted most of the chances that came his way.

A horrible howler committed by Tetteh Luggard gifted Allies another goal in the 81st minute.

Heart of Lions needed a double strike Nana Agyiri to beat visiting Amidaus Professionals 2-1 at the Kpando Park.

Agyiri, a former Hearts of Oak striker, scored first from open play before converting from the spot.

Daniel Awuney netted from a penalty kick award in the 75th minute to help Lions to their first win of the campaign.

A sublime finish from Daniel Kodie gave Liberty Professionals a slim 1-0 win over King Faisal in what was a highly entertaining game at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Godbless Asamoah scored a fine equaliser for Medeama SC at the Golden City Park in Berekum as they held Berekum FC to a 1-1 stalemate.

Youngster Godwin Tetteh had scored first for the Blues following a dazzling move by Nana Poku from inside the box.

AshGold had to hold onto an early strike from Francis Agyei to beat Wa All Stars 1-0 at the Len Clay Stadium.

Bechem United handed Ebusua Dwarfs their first defeat of the season with Toffiq Ayola scoring the only goal of the game in the 20th minute at the Bechem Park.

    Massa don't waste your time on EMPTY BARRELS. Before literacy, there was COMMON SENSE. I wonder why those who claim they are literate and not village club can hire fetish priests from Senegal instead of spending time training if it is not as a result of mere STUPIDITY. When the VILLAGE CLUB beatS them then they say their success was achieved through bribes. We will remain 'VILLAGERS' and 'ILLITERATES' but there is one thing that we have in abundance that the "JUJU FETISH LITERATE CLUB lacks, that is COMMON SENSE!!!

    Dear enjoy your day. Our parents did not send us to school for nothing. We learned, we understood, we comprehended and applied what we learned. That is why we have COMMON SENSE.
